Did Angels Produce Giants?
Sunday, December 1, 2013

Many people think that the fallen angels produced offspring with human females giving birth to giants and great men of renown. This paper will examine this idea and prove it true or false.  The scripture in question is below.
 

KJV Genesis 6:1-7
1.  And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
 2.  That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. (This refers to sex with a relative, “of all which they chose”)
 3.  And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
 4.  There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
 5.  And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
 6.  And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
 7.  And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

 

The phrase “sons of God” is defined buy those who support the idea that fallen angels reproduced with human females as angels but sons of God can refer to human beings, this term is never used in referring to fallen angels.
The Hebrew article for the word “son” from Strong’s is below;
 

Strong's Ref. # 1121
Romanized  ben
Pronounced bane
from HSN1129; a son (as a builder of the family name), in the widest sense (of literal and figurative relationship, including grandson, subject, nation, quality or condition, etc., [like HSN0001, HSN0251, etc.]):


Angels do not build up a family name nor are they capable of reproducing after their own kind or human kind.  All the angels were created by God before time and all of them were tested by God to prove them.  One third failed and became fallen while two thirds passed the test by remaining loyal to God.  God has never created any other angels since this non time event. Jesus had this to say about angels;

KJV Matthew 22:30
30.  For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

To take a wife is to be married and Jesus plainly says that angels do not marry.

KJV Mark 12:25
 25.  For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.

KJV Luke 20:35-36
 35.  But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:
 36.  Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.


The word giant is the article below;
 

Strong's Ref. # 1368
Romanized  gibbowr
Pronounced ghib-bore'
or (shortened) gibbor {ghib-bore'}; intensive from the same as HSN1397; powerful; by implication, warrior, tyrant:
KJV--champion, chief, X excel, giant, man, mighty (man, one), strong (man), valiant man.

4.  There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

The above verse plainly states that these tyrants or bullies existed even before the sons of God came to the daughters of men.
One of the shadows of man that makes man in God image and likeness is that mankind can procreate.  God intends to make children of His own from mankind through Jesus Christ.  Angels were not created to procreate but to be ministering spirits to those who can, humans. When God spoke of His displeasure over the events of Genesis 6 there was no mention of any angel.

3.  And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
5.  And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
 6.  And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
 7.  And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.


Why didn’t God destroy the fallen angels who did this deed?  How could the innocent offspring of such a union be held accountable? 
After Cain killed his brother Abel, he went to the land of Nod and his children were evil tyrants (giants) that God forbid the children of Seth to marry because it would spread evil but this did happen and the evil did spread to a degree that God sent the flood.  Noah was a man who scripture says was perfect in his generations.

 KJV Genesis 6:9
 9.  These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.


Noah was the tenth generation from Adam and a descendent of Seth and his line had no contact with Cain or Cain’s sons. Genesis chapter 5 gives the genealogy of Noah.

The history of Cain and his children was evil.

KJV Genesis 4:16
 16.  And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.

KJV Genesis 4:25-26
 25.  And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.
 26.  And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the Lord.

KJV 1 John 3:12
12.  Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.

KJV Jude 1:11
11.  Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

Seth was to take the place of Abel in the righteous line.

KJV Genesis 4:25
25.  And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.

Cain’s sons became tyrants and were evil. They did not call on the name of the Lord and dwelt outside His presence and had no fellowship with God. The righteous shall not reproduce with the wicked just as Israel was not to marry outside of Israel. 

To end the practice of sex with a relative, God gave the nation of Israel specific commands about who they could not engage in sexual relations with.  In the verses below God states that the heathen did practice these abominations.

KJV Leviticus 18:24-30
 24.  Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:
 25.  And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
 26.  Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:
 27.  (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;)
 28.  That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.
 29.  For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.
 30.  Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the Lord your God.


These abominations would defile Israel spiritually but they may also had a physical effect that caused genetic abnormalities like people of abnormal stature.

The first mention of very tall men is during the time of Moses many years after the flood.  Giants before the flood were men who were tyrants and cruel, evil bullies but no indication of great stature in the sense of height. The tallness factor seems to have come much later perhaps due to genetic mutation or anomaly caused by inbreeding.  God forbid the practice of sex with a near kinsman in Israel but the heathen still in bred.

The conclusion is that angels did not reproduce with human females; evil sons of Cain did and that caused evil to spread and brought the flood.  The heathen after the flood still practiced sexual abominations that could have produced people of abnormal height called giants.
